Elegant Winter Fashion for Curvy Women

Curvy women have more options than ever when it comes to trendy, of-the-moment fashion items. Long gone are the days of boxy jackets and shapeless silhouettes. Modern women with curves are embracing their bodies by wearing more fitted silhouettes that play up their favorite body parts, while minimizing areas of concern. Here are some of the hottest winter fashion trends for curvy women.

The color-blocking trend has been in style for several seasons, and it will continue to be a heavy hitter for fall. Color-blocking works for curvy ladies because it tricks the eye to play up your favorite features and diminish any perceived flaws. A black-and-white sheath dress that displays black side panels and a white front section will give the illusion of a teeny-tiny waist, while minimizing fuller hips and thighs.

Skinny Jeans and Leggings
Many fuller-figured women shy away from tapered pants, skinny jeans, and leggings for fear that their fuller hips and thighs will be on display in tighter silhouettes. They tend to believe that full-leg or boot cut styles are more flattering because they flare at the ankle and balance the fullness of the upper leg. This could not be further from the truth. A great pair of skinny jeans or opaque tights in a dark wash acts as shape wear. When paired with a pair of ballet flats or stilettos and a cocoon-style cardigan and cotton tank, it epitomizes country-club chic.

Flared-waist Dresses
This season's alternative to spring's peplum-style dress is the flared A-line dress. Its fuller silhouette typically features a fitted bodice and waist and flares to the knee, offering lots of movement and coverage. This silhouette is very romantic and the pull-on styling makes is easy to look polished and professional every day. The fuller style flares at the waist, hiding the tummy, hips, and thighs for a slim look.

Motorcycle Jackets
This winter, edgy motorcycle jackets are having a fashion moment. Motorcycle jackets typically feature grommets, asymmetrical zippers, snaps, and other details that draw the eye upward and away from the body. If you keep the jacket the focus by pairing it with neutral-colored bottoms and solid tops, the jacket will take center stage and draw the eye away from any perceived flaws.

The fall and winter months are the favorites for fashion lovers and curvy ladies. Tall-shaft boots, chunky-knit sweaters, and tailored pea coats lead the way. Unlike the bear-it-all trends of spring and summer, fall and winter fashions feature darker colors and offer more coverage. Curvy women, like most ladies, tend to feel more confident in clothing that offers more coverage and darker hues. This season's hottest trends will make any woman feel more confident, ladylike, trim, powerful, and beautiful.
